The Little Colonel
In 1870s Kentucky, stubborn Col. Lloyd (Lionel Barrymore) becomes estranged from his daughter, Elizabeth (Evelyn Venable), when she elopes with Northerner Jack Sherman (John Lodge). Six years later, when Jack goes prospecting, Elizabeth comes back with her spirited daughter, Lloyd (Shirley Temple). The colonel and Lloyd have a tumultuous meeting but gradually become friends. When Jack returns and the family's future is threatened, Lloyd's spunk and the colonel's obstinacy are put to the test.
